EMPTY NEST SYNDROME

Yes dear children...the Mistress is going through the empty nest syndrome. Since our last posting, I was beyond amazed how fast birds grow! Seems Roberta the robin did a great job raising her young.

I could swear I heard this one asking for gin?
I told him I didn't have any. By this look, I don't think he bought any of it.

As the babies got bigger, it was getting a tight fit for the three babies, and I noticed Roberta was not sleeping on the nest anymore at night. I believe she roosted in the near by tree on the corner by the window. Just look at the struggles of fitting in there.

The third is under these two!!! The poor thing.

Come Friday I noticed it was down to one fledgling left. The other two must have flown the nest Thursday sometime. I like to believe this one little bird didn't want to leave the Mistress, or was just enjoying the nest a little more.....

…..cause come Saturday when I got back from the pool he too was gone. No sign of any in the nest last night or this morning. I did however spot Roberta and one flapping around in a tree by the livingroom windows this afternoon. I wish them well on their new life in this big world. And may it be kind to them.

  11. Had my Stacia seen these birds on the sill, I am afraid the mother would have been unnerved and left. Nice posts.

  12. Aww. Best wishes to all the birds! It's a wonderful thing that they've all survived, thrived, and are living their own lives.

    Thanks for keeping us posted. Who knows? Maybe some other bird will make use of the nest.
